This is the official ACT Seniors Card website with information about obtaining a card, finding participating businesses, special offers and discounts, and information for businesses about how to participate.
The ACT Seniors Card is part of an Australia-wide initiative jointly supported by the ACT Government and Council on the Ageing (ACT). Each state and territory has a Seniors Card Scheme and some reciprocal arrangements are in place for using your card in other states and the Northern Territory.
The scheme recognises the valuable contribution of older people in their local community.
The ACT Seniors Card is issued free and provides access to savings on a range of goods and services provided by participating businesses.
A combination of government and non-government businesses make up the 300 participating organisations that provide a number of benefits and discounts on a wide range of goods and services.
Woolworths have a new program for the vulnerable called the Basics Box. The Basics Box was developed to help provide essential products to customers who are currently unable to visit their stores. This includes the elderly, people with a disability, those with compromised immunity and people in mandatory isolation.
To be eligible you’ll need to be able to show that you fall into one of these groups. For older Canberrans simply use your Seniors Card. For more information, visit the Woolworths website.
